DRAG WEEK RECORD BROKEN - LARRY LARSON RUNS A 6.95 AT 209.10 MPH
The 2010 Hot Rod Drag Week is over and it was the best ever! To end the week of competition, Larry Larson threw everything he had at breaking into the 6's on what turned out to be the final run of the night. Here is the first video to show that very run! There's an on board view and an awesome super slo-mo to get a great look at the fire breathing Chevy II that Larry wheeled to a Drag Week record of 6.95. We had two street driven cars run over 200 MPH in the quarter mile, Larry in his Chevy II and Jeff Lutz in his 57 Chevy and both cars survived the grueling 1000 mile drive as well!

Pain and Suffering at Drag Week 2010
Talk about HARD CORE! The guys who sign up for Hot Rods Drag Week are some
of the toughest racers in the country, hands down. To endure 5 tracks in 5
days and over 1000 miles of street driving from track to track across 4
different states, is one of the toughest tests of man and machine there is.
This video shows just a bit of the human suffering that is Drag Week. Keep
in mind, these warriors come back year after year.
Fastest Street Car in America! Meet 5-Time Drag Week Winner Larry Larson - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep 40
HOT ROD Drag Week is the world's most brutal test of a real street/strip
car, requiring the cars to drive 1,200-plus miles in one week while racing
five days in a row at four different tracks. Larry Larson has done the
impossible, winning five times in a row in his '66 Chevy Nova that has been
as quick as 6.94 seconds in the quarter mile at 200-plus mph. This ranks as
one of the most impressive feats in all of motorsports, and has earned the
Nova the title of HOT ROD Magazine's Fastest Street Car in America. In this
episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, meet the humble chassis builder from Oak
Grove, Missouri, who makes it happen.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Larry Larson Runs 6's.mov
BangShift.com presents Larry Larson's 2009 Drag Week winning '66 Chevy II
running 6.934 at 211.59 mph in Las Vegas at the PSCA Street Car
Supernationals. This video shows you all the angles, from inside,
underneath the bumper, and outside the car. Larry's car was unchanged from
it's Drag Week trim, and had only been outfitted with a new pair of Hoosier
DOT legal "slicks". Over the 4 day event, Larry ran 6.99, 7.00, 6.96, and
finally 6.93. After the 6.93 on Saturday evening, we added air to the
tires, packed the chutes, filled it with pump gas, and cruised the strip
for about 4 hours while shooting video and photos. Stay tuned at
www.BangShift.com for a feature on Larry's car along with more killer 6
second and cruising video.
